From simple to more detailed with Penny Black's new Valentines stamps

Love
Hello Friends, How is it going? I am gasping of the thought that Christmas Eve is in 5 days!! While I catch my breath I want to say a big "Thanks" for all of your positive feedback on my videos  I really appreciate it :) & I hope to have part 2 by Friday.  Today this first card is featured on the Penny Black blog. Since my cards can get pretty detailed I will be sharing a more simpler version of each card hopefully with each post. Below you will find the quick version & a mini tutorial on how I stamped the top card. 
Love
I admit I wet a little nuts with the gems and pearls but, I couldn't stop myself.  The rose is the same stamp (as the card above) and colored with the affordable Le Plume markers and a few Copics. YES you can mix them. I have to mention the Le Plume markers are on sale for only $ 2.39 for a limited time. To finish off my card I layered a soft pink vellum with this sentiment and then had some fun adding gems & pearls from Kaiser. The back side of the card I traced the edge with a bright marker.

I love this "stamping mask paper" that I use when I want to stamp something multiple times. I inked up my stamp on white card stock. Then I stamped it again onto the mask paper which has a slightly blue tint. I have already cut it out & placed the "mask" sticky side down onto my image. (don't worry it peels of nice and clean)

Now you can see that I have stamped over the image with the masked paper on top two more times.

Give it a minute to dry and peel up the masks.

After I colored my images I used my this paper cutter to trim a line on each side of the flowers being careful to stop where I wanted to cut out the image. I held my face close to the trimmer and I could see where to stop the blade. Certainly a drawing a line with a pencil would work but, I admit that I am NOT so good at cutting out a perfect line with scissors.

Add some sewing perhaps and some layering. I am always reaching for these Spellbinder Edgeabilites for my cards and the sentiment banner is a Spellbinder too. Sentiment is from SRM stickers. I hope you will have time to see what's been happening on the Penny Black Blog and I am wishing you the best of luck this week as you finish off your last week before Christmas. (IF you celebrate Christmas) 
Hope to see you soon. Hugs, Kathy

The button is vintage and the sentiment is from SRM stickers. Notice the sharp boarder in white? It's the negative from the inside boarder when I cut it out. Make sense?? Is there anything you are looking for in a video from me?? Just send me an email I would love to hear our suggestions.
